CCUSD’s work in art education is featured in the recently released LA County Arts Education Collective’s 20th Anniversary Celebration Book that highlights two decades of work and progress towards achieving scale and equity in arts education.
In 2002, the LA County Board of Supervisors launched the LA County Arts Education Collective as the regional initiative working to ensure all young people grow up with the arts. Twenty years later, the Arts Ed Collective stands as a national model of public-private collective impact, reaching over one million LA County youth each year.
Coordinated by the LA County Department of Arts and Culture, the Arts Ed Collective engages a robust coalition of school districts (including CCUSD), charter school networks, cultural organizations, teaching artists, educators, County agencies, advocates, policy makers, and philanthropic partners. This Celebration Book acknowledges the hundreds of individuals, organizations, and communities who have come together to accomplish more than any group could have achieved alone.
